Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDiagnosis Original diagnosis by Holthe (1976: 59): ''Thorax with a restricted number of bristle-bearing segments, abdomen long with numerous segments. Prostomium-peristomium without eyes. On each of the segments 2 and 3, one pair of principally dichotomous branchiae with very short stems. Lateral lobes present, but not much developed, on segments 2, 3, and 4. Notosetae beginning on segment 4 and extending throughout the thorax. Ventral uncini beginning on segment 5. Uncini in double rows from segment 11 throughout thorax, and in a small number of the abdominal segments. Ventral shields present in the anterior part of thorax. Notosetae with finely serrated brim on one side. Uncini small, avicular.'' [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEtymology Not stated. The generic epithet is composed by the prefix of Greek origin para-, meaning 'beside', 'next to' or 'near', and the name of the genus Amphitrite O.F. Müller, 1771, and refers presumably to the morphological affinities between the two genera. [details]
